Details:

Ruby on Rails (or Rails) is an open-source, full-stack framework for developing web/cloud-based applications according to the Model-View-Control pattern. Using Rails, it is possible to write beautiful code by favouring convention over configuration. It is almost a decade old now and the community has developed a set of principles which allow programmers to write powerful applications that scale and change with little effort and time.

This session will:

  • Walk through the Rails framework for web development
  • Discuss some key philosophies that enable us to write beautiful code and
  • See some hacks and workarounds to drive efficiency and high performance.
